Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...


Recommended Posts

A few years ago my wife lost some weight by following a low carb diet. It’s obviously only one way to lose weight and won’t work for everyone and lots of low carb advocates are barmy but it really worked for her. One thing that was interesting was the reaction of her mother, who reacted to someone losing weight while eating meat like a Labrador that’s just been shown a card trick. She just assumed that diet meant low fat and was perplexed by it not being like that. 

In a related way she also buys vegan food unnecessarily. She is convinced that vegan = healthy. She bought me a vegan birthday cake one year. I can’t think of any reason why a vegan chocolate cake would be better for your health than a regular chocolate cake. I also just don’t like the taste of a lot of the substitute food, I’m not sure what component it is that leaves a funny aftertaste but it’s something I find with most vegan food I taste.

one of our close friends is vegan and we try to go to vegan restaurants when she stays with us and I enjoy eating at them but the everyday stuff isn’t something I could eat regularly, just in grounds of taste.

I think it makes sense to have vegan substitutes for lots of reasons but one is when you’re transitioning from a meat based diet to a plant one and you’re no confident at cooking then it’s easy to just switch out the real stuff for the fakes.

Do you slice your roast beef a bit thinner while transitioning?

The recent trend of plant based food is great, as when I go to a restaurant I don’t have to order a macaroni cheese or a mushroom risotto every fucking time. Not that there’s anything wrong with them but it’s nice to have a choice.

If you find yourself annoyed by a display of products in a supermarket, just walk away, stand in the real meat aisle and take some deep breaths. Don’t worry. They’re not going to take your precious bacon away.

ha ala Athletico Mince and Slaughterhouse....

At work where someone sends you an email asking a question and then someone else (usually a project manager, in fact always a project manager) either forwards the same email to you or replies all within about 30 seconds asking you to respond.
Give me a fucking chance to respond before asking again you twat.

People who don't complain at the time and instead leave negative feedback once they're out the building. So often the complaint can be easily rectified at the time, instead they put up with it for days and leave a bad review when they get home.

Had one tonight complaining that we don't sell hot drinks. We don't sell hot drinks because we provide them for free. Obviously asking a member of staff if hot drinks are available was far too much effort and they just assumed the worst.

Where might one find this free hot drink provision?

I make huge efforts to avoid having to ask someone something, particularly in shops.

You do know the hot drink was the blood of the pig  they just gleefully slaughtered in the back room?
